Newsblurb: Frozen Endzone is now Frozen Cortex

Call it Frozen Cortex.  Apparently the developers were tired of the ‘Frendzone’ jokes and the confusion about the game simulating American Football.  The robot players and randomly generated field weren’t enough to distinguish it from Madden.  Or maybe the NFL isn’t as universal as we Americans like to think it is.  Regardless, anything from the …

Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn

I had been meaning to pick up Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, but it got hard to find.   For a while people were asking outrageous prices.  The prices have finally come down.  I was considering getting it when a bunch of reviews for Gundam Reborn started showing up.  I found it interesting that many of them …

E3 2014

It’s hard to believe that we’re already through another E3. That might make more sense for me since I’m also finding it hard to believe that my little baby is about to start walking. It’s amazing how much time flies when you’re always busy. I have gotten a bit more gaming time in. I’ve been …

It’s Star Wars day.  I’m going to give you my list of the top 10 Star Wars games that I’ve played.  Note that I’ve played many more Star Wars games than that, but not all deserve a mention.  I’m rolling expansion packs and DLC into the main game if applicable. 10. Masters of the Teras …

Gaming with David

Fishing

Growing up as the kid of a gamer has to be a bit weird. A lot of stuff I would have had to begged my parents for is just lying around our house. David is the oldest, so he has the most gaming experience of the kids. He’s smart and has great reflexes. It won’t …

Game of the Week: Bravely Default Demo

Yes, it’s a demo of a JRPG.  It also has more gameplay that some full games I’ve played lately.  I’m not just talking about indie passion projects or mobile games.  I also admit that Bravely Default isn’t a great name.  It’s memorable, but that’s about it.  Fortunately, we live in a gaming world with products …

Kickstarter: Unsung Story

Yes, it’s another Kickstarter.  However, you get a bunch of leeway from me if you create one of my all time favorite games.  I don’t even know what to say if you create two (Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XII).  Yasumi Matsuno has also created games I enjoyed (Vagrant Story, Tactics Ogre, and Final Fantasy …

Game of the Week: DMC Devil May Cry

In the spirit of Halloween, we have the latest version of Devil May Cry available on 360, PS3 and PC.  This is a reboot and comes from the UK instead of Japan.  Perhaps slightly tongue in cheek, we start with an amnesiac hero.  He wakes after a night of wild partying to find a demon …
